Read the Christmas story as if for the first time.
When was the last time you felt true Christmas wonder? Does reading the traditional story invoke bored sighs instead of astonished gasps?
What if we could hold a candle to history’s frosted window and peer into the past? In Remarkable Advent, Shauna Letellier drapes the fabric of imagination over the framework of Scripture, and the Christmas story comes to life. Through the window, you’ll see Mary readjust the knot on her belted waist. You’ll long to comfort Joseph as he wrestles with what seems to be a terrible nightmare.
Twenty-five daily readings include scripture, an imaginative retelling of the moments leading to Christ’s birth, a devotional reflection, and a prayer. You will discover it has always been God’s intention to use ordinary people—like you and me—to fulfill his extraordinary plan.
The story of Christmas is proof.
